wolverinefactor’s review published on Letterboxd:
I started this film in the hopes of it being my final film of 2014. However, I wanted to go to the gym and I honesty didn't care about these characters. The little boy is beyond annoying and while I found the mother intriguing, it wasn't enough to hold my attention.
So it's now 2015 and I have finished the film. It grows on you once the book comes back but new problems arise, mainly the fact that the books story is basically the film. I understand the meaning and I liked how psychological this film was but by the end I still didn't care what happened to this film, and that's a shame because this could have been the years best horror film, but it's not.
